Blizzard is hurriedly trying to fix some of the ongoing issues with the Cataclysm Classic Pre-Patch, and today they have rolled out another round of hotfixes to check a few items off the list.

Included in today’s fixes are some adjustments to Children’s Week quests that weren’t granting credit consistently. Note that due to some of the issues with this holiday event, Blizzard has already extended it by an extra week in Cataclysm Classic.

Warlocks also saw a bunch of fixes today, mostly around their pets and abilities related to those pets.

You can see all of the fixes that were included in the original post below.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Account wide achievements that reward titles now grant them at an account level.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from receiving daily Random Battleground rewards.
  • Smoke Bomb will now properly cancel Stealth, Prowl, and Shadowmeld from enemy players.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent Warden Stillwater from spawning during the “Lawn of the Dead” quest.
  • Fixed an issue where Death Knights in Blood Presence could be incorrectly, critically hit by all melee attacks.
  • Reduced the cost of all honor and arena gear from Wrath of the Lich King, to better match honor gain while at level 80 compared to level 85.
  • Holidays
    • Made some improvements to the Children’s Week Quests “The Banshee Queen”, “Malfurion Has Returned!”, and “The Fallen Chieftain” to more consistently grant quest credit.
  • Warlock
    • The Warlock Demon Soul ability will now work with the Incubus pet.
    • Fixed an issue where Warlock Demonology pets were not properly updating from Mastery.
    • Fixed an issue with the incorrect tooltip on Demonic Pact. It should correctly read that it grants the Warlock 2% increased personal spell damage.
